School name should honor Patsy Mink’s contributions

No disrespect to the Feb. 9 letter writer suggesting the people of Kihei having a say in naming the new high school, but “South Maui High”? We can do better.

Maybe the letter writer doesn’t know Patsy Mink grew up on Maui or that she represented the 2nd District, which includes all the outer islands, including Maui.

It’s just perfect that the former Maui High student body president who went on to serving not only Maui but all of Hawaii get a high school to remind us of all her contributions.

South Maui High? There’s no soul in in that name.
